Out of eight seasons on Showtime, here are four episodes that still resonate with the actor.
Michael C. Hall's guide to start watching 'Dexter.'

Great news: Michael C. Hall has the perfect binge guide to Dexter before the next evolution of the show debuts on Nov. 7 on Showtime. "I recommend you start with the first episode and then watch them in order," the actor says.

He's kidding (we think). Dexter lasted for eight seasons before finally signing off in 2013, so that's a whole lot of ground to cover before the start of New Blood. So he (and we) have a compromise. First, read our cover story. Then, watch the above video to get a sense of the series and the kind of episodes Hall liked to do. If anything, it will remind you of some of the great guest stars who have appeared on the series since it first launched in 2006.

Looking back, Hall is amazed at how popular the drama had become. "When I got the pilot script, my first thought was, 'wow, is this gonna work? A show about a serial killer?' And when I would tell people what I was up to, they would kind of say, 'oh, good luck with that.' I thought the show would maybe attract a niche audience. That it was as broadly popular or appealing as it was, was a bit of a surprise. It allowed me to keep going to work and telling stories that I felt like were worth telling."
